Philadelphia Phillies reliever Seranthony Domínguez is another good bullpen option for the Colorado Rockies

Seranthony Domínguez has not been healthy in the last two years for the Philadelphia Phillies since he had Tommy John surgery in July 2020 but now that he is healthy, he could be an asset for the Colorado Rockies.

Dominguez, 27, returned to pitch for the Phillies in one game in 2021 and missed the entire 2020 season but in 2018 and 2019, Dominguez was very effective. In 2018 (his rookie season), he appeared in 53 games and he had an ERA of 2.95. He finished 24 games and had 16 saves along with a 40 ERA+, a 2.85 FIP, a 0.931 WHIP, and an average of 3.4 walks and 11.5 strikeouts per nine innings.

In 2019, he appeared in 27 games before he suffered his torn UCL (he had the Tommy John surgery more than a year after he suffered the injury in early June 2019). In those 27 appearances, he had a 4.01 ERA with a 112 ERA+, a FIP of 4.02, a 1.459 WHIP, and he averaged 4.4 walks and 10.6 strikeouts per nine innings.

While he hasn’t pitched consistently for a while, he could be a good option for the Rockies since he has closing experience and his high groundball rate. In his career, he has a groundball percentage of 55.3 percent.

Dominguez is eligible for arbitration for the first time this offseason so the Rockies would have a few years of control with him.
